Each morning at my present company, we have a practice of ending our daily meeting with a quote. These are typically business or leadership related but not always. Sometimes we mix it up a bit to keep things interesting or just to open up the floor to other offerings. I believe that this is a good practice as a whole and our team leaves the meeting with a message that is hopefully inspiring or at least thought provoking. In my opinion, some of these are worth retaining and repeating. Below are some of the quotes I like. I’ll add periodically so check back or bookmark this page.
